#10 – Bon Jovi, Lay Your Hands On Me

Bon Jovi: Lay Your Hands On Me

Ladies, please! No open flames. The ultimate ’80s hair-metal sex symbol reclines in skin-tight pants (ouch!) and a pucker to match, slouching suggestively in the saddle of a tassled road pig, practically begging you to lay your hands on his shrink-wrapped leather thighs. Even though this ’88 Heritage Softail (on permanent display at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio) was featured in a video and a number of posters, it was more than just a set piece. In the heyday of the band’s popularity, the Harley apparently helped the singer escape the limelight. “I’d started feeling like part of a machine I didn’t want to be part of,” he said in 2006. “I’d ride cross-country for a month at a time with two pairs of jeans, a few T-shirts and a couple of credit cards.” Yep, he seems to get it.

    “James Gang Rides Again” definitely top 5.

  • Tyler

    I was excited to see Meat Loaf’s Bat out of Hell album as the opening artwork for this, but then it only gets number 3? It’s one of the most badass albums ever made, capped off by a sweet bike, unfortunately not a Harley, which may have warranted it’s number 3 spot. Oh well, as Prince would say, “Game. Blouses.”
